[p]I read that article, but there were so many negating opinions and warnings that I didn't trust most of it. For example, someone pointed out that not eating before exercising does indeed cause your body to burn fat rather than carbs, but that it's burning fat in your muscles instead of where you want fat to be burned from. [/p][p]The piece of advice that I found interesting was where they said, "If you have a long, hard run without breakfast once a week, that hard run will train you to burn fat...And for the rest of the week, have plenty of carbohydrates so you can train hard." That seems to mix the two philosophies in a logical way. [/p]

[p][br][/p][p=text-align: center;][img=198x275]http://www.bodybuilding-pics.com/43/images/Arnold_Schwarzenegger_989.jpg[/img][/p][p][font face="verdana,geneva" size="2"]Most diabetics have been brought up that before a physical activity we should eat a carb in order to not go low in blood sugar during/after we work out. I know for myself, I tend to eat something light, say a small banana to see me through, and also carry a juice box/glucose tablets/water, depending on the type of activity I'm doing.[/font][/p][p][font face="verdana,geneva" size="2"]A recent study is saying that skipping the pre-workout snack (and this seems to be based on working out in the morning) - could actually be beneficial not only to nondiabetics but also to diabetics. According to the article, exercising without eating helps produce muscles that absorb glucose better - which is important for preventing diabetes. Scientists say in the article " ... if you haven't eaten before exercising, your body doesn't have many carbohydrates in reserve. That forces it to burn fat instead ".[/font][/p][p][font face="verdana,geneva" size="2"]As most of us know, with weight loss, our insulin works more efficiently, so from what I gather with this article, if I exercise without having anything to eat prior to working out I will build up muscles faster. Hmm, I don't want to look like Arnold Schwarzenegger, but if I can have better insulin absorption, I'm willing to give it a try.[/font][/p][p][font face="verdana,geneva" size="2"]Of course, in the article, a few people say that this is a no-no for diabetics, but again, everyone is different in how they manage their diabetes. If it works, then great!
